Pet Myth

It’s a myth that dogs and cats are more resistant than people to cold just because they have fur. Even long-haired pets are at risk in cold weather. Keep your pets inside. If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your pet. Cats and dogs should be kept inside during cold weather.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has completed a data review of lead and copper compliance sampled from our system during June through September 2019 monitoring period. This review indicates that the City’s water system has exceeded a lead or copper action level and is required to take additional steps associated with an action level. In accordance with TAC §290.117(b), the action level for lead is 0.015 milligrams per liter (mg/L) and the action level for copper is 1.3 mg/L. Compliance sample results for the June through September 2019 monitoring period from the City of Hitchcock exceeded the 90th percent result for lead. The 90th percentile amount for lead is 0.0189 mg/L. Information about the City’s water system and the 90th percentile sample results can be found on the Texas Drinking Water Watch website at https://www.tceq.gov/got/dww.
